|KevinB||Inquiry on James O'Brien|
I have a question James O'Brien. The 2nd LT buried in OH. It listed you as creator. In description it said he was captured and killed by the Japanese. I am wondering where did you get this information. Was it from the POW record? I could not find anything on NARA. The reason I am asking is because my great uncle Junius D Jenkins was on the same plane and he was listed as MIA. I am trying to find more about him. Was it an engine failure? Or was it shot down? Do you by chance have more information about James O'Brien, and that will help find what happened to the rest of his crews. My grandpa wrote in his journal that someone told him the plane was crashed 80 miles inland. On the website it says it was lost at sea.
If we can find which camp he was at, maybe he had told the story about the plane to some other POWs who survived from the war.
Thank you in advance for your help! I really appreciate all your effort in doing this!

Thank you for your most recent email. Be advised the duplicate photo was deleted. Please note Dillard's monument is located in the Citizens Cemetery, Coconino County, Flagstaff, AZ; not the Calvary Cemetery.

I was just looking up my uncle's name and came across it listed in Find A Grave. I have never had the pleasure of meeting him, but have heard so many wonderful things about him from my mother, her brother.
I want to thank you for looking after him. My mom goes there often and is always happy to find the flag and comments about it. He is with his parents so I feel his is happy being with them.
I want to thank you for my family for all that you do.
Sincerely - Brenda Kelley

I've added a new VC called "Added for March 1945."
Not all entries are for March 1945 but most are. You can look and select any you want to add to yours. About the middle of next month I will change it to the next corresponding month and add new names...

|Marybeth Novak Lindgren||RE: Facchini, Dario #56755315|
Sorry I took so long to reply. Back in Alaska now. I only could read 2 "In Memory Of" markers. There was only about a foot of snow but I didn't want to disturb how peaceful the undisturbed blanket of snow over the graves looked. I saw Dario Facchini's marker and one for Raymond Globokar's #56131526. I hope to be there for Memorial Day again and will photo all of the markers in the "old" Veterans' section along with the ones scattered throughout the cemetery. I've made a spreadsheet sorted by sections/plots of those I need to find. I'll see what I can find in Hibbing. They have a pretty nice website with a grave finder that maps & tags the location. Hopefully I won't run into the same problem I had with Chisholm. If they weren't buried there, they're not in the data base. I have a copy of my cousin's "In Memory Of" marker being ordered and delivered to the cemetery but he's not in the data base because he was lost at sea. Same with Dario and Raymond. If I get a nice day I'll just photo all of the Veterans' markers in Hibbing also and go from there. After I take the photos I'll contact you on how to proceed.

|dm wms||Re: Gregory Regnier|
I received an edit request from you to remove the memorial for my uncle. He was buried in Belgium during the war and we have records that verify that. If you will notice, on his memorial there is a note indicating that he was removed and interred at his final resting place and the memorial that documents that grave. I do not intend to remove either of the memorials. He was buried in each place and deserves a place in both. Thank you for you suggestion, but it is important to us, his family, that where he rested is honored as well as he, himself.

|Joan Bartz||RE: Clayton Lee Adams|
If the memorials are merged, who will managed the single memorial? The contributor who created the original doesn't respond when I have asked info to be added to his memorials. The contributor who created the "duplicate" not only recorded the historical info provided by a soldier who saw Clayton's temporary grave soon after his death, but he also added the information about my father. Even though I am a relative, I am not within the Find A Grave guidelines, so it wouldn't be transferred to me. So, for these reasons, I'd rather have the duplicates.

|The Lady in Black||My veterans virtual cemeteries|
I've just put together virtual cemeteries for all the major conflicts on my profile page, so feel free to take a look. I don't have them separated by served or KIA--there's far too many for me to do them that way, and I just don't have the time. I'm adding to them as I go along, so feel free to check back.

Shane I have one I could use some help on. Leander M. Young died in World war II he was from Grand island Nebraska and I found him buried in South Dakota Find A Grave #106389154. I am trying to prove his father Find A Grave #50510757 same name was killed in World War I in 1918 in France. Not used to working on World War I heroes do you have any leads. Thanks . If my hunch is right the son was born the same year his Father was killed. Thanks for any help you can give me. Loren

|Michael & Allison Dillingham||Ernest A Rydeen|
Find A Grave Memorial# 37233186
A poster (with some very poor pictures) of Mr Rydeen's canteen during WWII is at my local VA Hospital. I also found an article about Mr Rydeen on line (http://frm.stparchive.com/Archive/FRM/FRM06082011p07.php)
Was going to post both, but album size is maxed out with the 5 photos that are on his memorial.
Please let me know if you'd like these items for addition to his memorial.

|John Dowdy||john W. shaw|
Shane, Shaw appears USAAFdata.com as part of this crew and is mentioned in several forums as being KIA with this crew on this date. On the USAAF web site state is listed as unknown. That usually means that something may be wrong with the record keeping.
but i feel that this is the same guy.

|Debbie J||RE: James A Riley|
Sorry. He had no marker. Two of us have walked the entire cemetery and photographed the entire cemetery and found no marker. The book of markers printed in 1965 by the sexton states does not list him therefore he had no marker in 1965. i am aware that a marker was ordered for him but no kne knows what happened to it. Nothing else can be done. The internment does list him so we know that was a grave purchased in 1949. He is buried with his parents also no marker for them

|Tina Galey-Horrall||Wayne Anderson|
I want to share...Sgt. Wayne W. Anderson was interred on 12/4/48. He is in section D/178/3- no marker. Also, if this is the correct one, he has a Jean Anderson next to him in D/178/2- interred in on 2/24/67 & she is next to Thomas J. Anderson- D/178/1- interred in on 1/3/68.
Please let me know if you create memorials for his family.
I cannot understand why he did not recieve a marker.
Take care! Tina

|Dr. Mike||RE: Inverness Cemetery|
As you know by now, I did in fact locate the grave you requested and posted it. Because of the nature of the request, several people got involved with this and there were several foot searches by several different persons. I've updated the Inverness City's records and also have an additional veteran's grave site photo that lies adjacent to Mr. Cato. If you would like to create a memorial for him, please let me know. Sorry to have taken so long to track down this marker, sometimes these things take time and effort. From all those involved, we hope this helps your research/catalog/family records and on behalf of the people involved, we thank young Mr. Cato for his sacrifice... we hope he is at least resting in peace in paradise.

Hi Shane, I must say that I am so very impressed with the fantastic effort you are putting in! I try to do what little I can to clean up around a veteran's grave and their marker, take and post as many photos here as I can. I came across SSgt Roberson's marker yesterday and was humbled to be in the presence of a gentleman that went in on the first wave of D-Day and gave all he had. I posted the picture I took to your memorial. Thank you so very much for what you are doing!
